Messiah de le Poer was member of Inferni. The son of Priest de le Poer and Symera Villisca, he was raised to believe wolves are enemies and sought to make them atone for their sins through blood. His abusive nature led him to attack his fellow Infernians, and he ultimately committed suicide at his trial under the stealthy instruction of Prophet de le Poer.
Medium Carmine (#A24932)
Antique Brass (#C28660)

20 lbs (9 kg)— 21 in (53 cm)
Messiah is a small, willowy coyote with underfed muscle.
125 lbs (57 kg) — 36 in (91.5 cm)
His Secui form bulks out with muscle but remains very lean.
150 lbs (58 kg) — 5ft 3in (63 in) (160 cm)
He is short and willowy with rangy muscle, very awkward in appearance.
- Speech: Messiah has a high voice and simple vocabulary -- when he is not threatening or guilting someone. He also snorts when he laughs, omg.
- Scent: He smells of marshland, coyote, blood, and general "arousal" or excitement.
- Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Oral fixation, so often found chewing on something -- bones, sticks, anything to occupy his mouth.
- General Posture and Body Language: Messiah has constantly-changing posture depending on what he's feeling, from submission to aggression. One constant is that his posture is always very active, forward, excited, very expressive. For example, if happy, he might bounce a little on his paws or really perk up; if submissive, he'll go the full extent to show his belly.
Messiah is an awkward, absentminded boy, uncertain of himself, who idolizes his parents as the ultimate authority on life. Unfortunately, his parents happen to be sadistic, wolf-hating rapists who neglected him much of his childhood and culled his wolfish siblings.
As a result, Messiah is rather messed up. Desperately longing to be worthy in the eye of his parents, he obeys their word. He follows consistent morals -- albeit twisted, violent ones. He is a shy, awkward young man at the best of times, but sadistic and aggressive at his worst. Even his uncertain, daydreaming persona inspires only disgust. He is not endearing or charming -- he is apparently "off," uncomfortable to be around.
But he is not all twisted innocence, a poor individual shackled by a neglectful childhood. It is hard to pity Messiah, as he will openly emotionally abuse those close to him, the few he is able to. He preys on the weak out of opportunity, destroying others' concepts of themselves with guilt and conditional affection. Many won't call him manipulative -- manipulation implies a level-head, a keen eye or empathy, an ability to understand motives and fears and take advantage -- but he is an abuser and he will manipulate those he can without a deep mastery or understanding of it.
Excitable, awkward, nervous, shy, abusive, aggressive
